Format: Audio CD
yes, this album seeps in. but let me start off first by saying that i find it very sad that this incredible album somehow slipped through the cracks when it came out. hopefully it will eventually be appreciated. i suspect that pitchfork's mediocre review had something to do with it, but that's only how some people find their music, so i dunno. you can read other reviews and figure out who influenced who and how this band sounds like this or that, but i don't think that's important - it taints and influences expectations. what is important is how crystal stilts execute their unique and totally enveloping vibe.

but so this record is brilliant. the sounds all fit together with lots of room for you to walk in between and settle in for a nice trip to somewhere dark, strangely familiar, and warm. there's little psychedelic gems scattered throughout, and if you pay close enough attention, you'll not only appreciate the great songwriting, but also the subtle excellent execution of this album. some may complain that the singer's vocals are too reverberated or aren't mixed high enough to hear. first, that's not the case with all of the songs. so when he wants you to understand what he's saying, you'll be able to. otherwise, blend yourself into the mood fog and go with it.

i hope this record gets its dues, but for now, this is my contribution.

I wasn't sure what to expect from these guys. I went out a limb to check out this album, and WOW was I blown away. This album has great jangly guitar riffs, and keeps you hooked to whole time. The singer has a low droning voice comparable to Ian Curtis of Joy Division or Paul Banks of Interpol, but this album shouldn't be confused with those two bands. If I would compare it to anything, it would be closer to The Velvet Underground or The Doors. I haven't heard anything quite like this for a long time. Love it!

Format: Audio CD
2nd album from New York band combines big, churning, ringing 60s guitar pop, psychedelic
swamp/drone dirges, melody-driven garage rock, psycho/surf rock, 50s style sock hop
shoegaze, tremolo-twanged indie rock & rootsy, dirty chord blues stomp. This is haunted,
dance-along, hummable retro psych rock with an indelibly fresh indie rock stamp. Shades of
Green Pajamas, The Cramps, the Black Angels, Solaram, Velvet Underground, Jesus & Mary
Chain.

Crystal stilts is an excellent band and this is in my opinion their best album to date. Their style is not for everyone, but if you can get into it, you will surely enjoy these songs.

Album is not bad.They just sound like a 60's cover band to me instead of having their own sound.I like the more dark and and abstract songs on the album.The lighter songs not so much.If you a fan of the band you should pick it up.
